Liam, thank you so much for this information!
I did not know about all the HACKINTOSH action out there!
Good to hear that one system will use SATA drive > I will just have to
find some old installable OS for it.
The family of the deceased engineer that passed these on to us at the
SMECC Museum project tossed most any paperwork or media , so we have
what is installed on the system and of course for the diskless one we are
We we were out scrounging now I wish I had picked up more vintage MAC
paperwork and discs now.
We saved stuff related to the early MAC and of course ANYTHING we could
find for the APPLE II.
We do also have something that looks like an APPLE LISA but not the
twiggi (sp?) drive model I have heard reference to. it turned on last time I
tried but just a bunch of diddle crap all over the screen. (bogus
contents of memory mapped video or!?? <this machine is a mystery to me I saw
it when it came out but that is abut the only experience I have had with
LISA remember I was a HP guy in the business days... I do remember going
over to a store in Metrocenter in AZ and seeing one for the first time
with a MOUSE on it! I was amazed...
Again... thanks for the hints and help now and in the future.

There are ways around it.
Ask the Hackintosh community:

Takes any old SATA drive, as far as I recall. No special firmware needed.
Will run up to OS X 10.5, nothing later.
